The 2017 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival Has Begun!

That’s SIX WEEKS of delicious California-inspired eats and drinks! Once again in 2018, the Festival will offer a daily format (instead of taking place just on the weekends as in years prior). If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland Resort, you won’t want to miss the 2018 Festival!

2018 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival Coverage

  • News: Booking Now Available for Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Events and Demos
  • Disneyland Food & Wine Festival 2018 Dates Announced
  • Festival Marketplaces Booths

    For 2018, the DCA Food and Wine Festival will feature over a dozen Festival Marketplaces — aka Food Booths! These booths, similar to what you find at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, offer appetizer-sized portions of dishes as well as cocktails, beer, and wine.

    We can’t wait to see what they’ll be serving up in 2018! In the meantime, you can see all of the menus — and pics of ALL the food! — from the 2017 DCA Food and Wine Festival by visiting our 2017 Main Menu Page. Be sure to click through to all of the individual pages to see photos and details about every drink and dish!

    There were a TON of BRAND NEW DISHES in 2017, but we always look forward to trying returning favorites, like the White Cheddar Ale and Bacon Soup! Here’s hoping it’s back once again in 2018!

    In 2017, there was an entire booth devoted to BACON love! Last year, one of the featured dishes was the Maple Bacon Whoopie Pie.
